Proposal No. 2007-65

This proposal to the Pierce County Council would move the implementation of ranked choice voting from the 2008 elections to the 2010 elections. This proposal should be defeated. This proposal does not belong on the ballot.

In 2006, Pierce County voters voted to implement ranked choice voting for most county level elections. Being able to rank candidates is something the voters want to be able to do.

The Pierce County Elections Department has been moving forward with a well-thought-out plan to implement ranked choice voting in 2008 and will run the best ranked choice election in the country in 2008. We do not need to delay implementation.

The County Council should vote this proposal down.
